JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): Two border policemen and three insurgents were killed during an overnight clash in eastern Nangarhar province, an official said on Saturday.

Another six militants and a policeman were injured in the gun-battle that broke out in the Fateh Mena area of Lalpoor district bordering Pakistaninfo-icon’s tribal region of Khyber late on Friday night, Idrees Momand, the police spokesman said.

The two-hour mid-night clash erupted when a group of militants attacked a border police post on the eastern border, Momand added.
